KEY Interviews “Best Friends Forever” Creators – Guess Which Parts of the Show are Inspired by Real Life
We interviewed Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham — stars of “Best Friends Forever,” a new NBC comedy about relationships, life changes, and those awkward pauses in-between.
Best lines from interview:
St. Clair: “We play heightened versus of ourselves, or maybe we play ourselves, I’m not sure.”
Parham: “One of our development executives actually has something called ‘Lazy Sundays,’”
St. Clair: “My dad was so excited for the premier that he made a batch of Monster energy drink chili for his friends… some of them needed to be taken to the E.R.”
St. Clair on getting a butt rash from wearing yoga pants too often: “I wish that wasn’t from my real life, but it is.”
St. Clair: “We’ve aired all our dirty laundry literally.”
Both St. Clair and Parham act and write for the new series, serving as executive creators and producers. You may recognize St.Clair from the film “Bridesmaids” or her guest appearances on “Parks and Recreation,” “Weeds,” and “United States of Tara.” Parham has received acclaim for her role on the series “Accidentally on Purpose.”
Tune in Wednesdays, 8:30 p.m. ET on NBC for “Best Friends Forever.”
